Inspired by the brilliant SDN Editions, which has been kindly hosting several of my most recent fanedits, I have been doing my best to stitch together what I hope is a 90 minute feature-length fourth outing for Tobey Macguire

Rather than bore you with the very rough trailer I put together for it, I chose instead to announce this project using a music video…in this altered reality, everyone’s ‘favourites’ Nickelback once again contribute to a Spidey soundtrack, with the song ‘Lullaby’ telling two stories at once. I’d include more footage, but I don’t want to give the game away too much on what I have coming up.

If so inclined, enjoy

Austin Powers: The Very Shagadelic Sequel [Fanedit]

Austin Poster

I’ve worked out how to combine Austin Powers 2 and 3 into one big shaggedlic sequel baby, yeah!
here’s how I sorted it out
-Start the movie with the Tom Cruise intro, cut Danny Devito after Kevin Space appears as Dr. Evil
-After Speilberg shows Austin his Oscar, we cut to Dr. Evil’s pod leaving the Big Boy
-Cut opening credits after Vanessa dies, and instead switch to Austin’s knighthood from Goldmember
-After Austin and Basil’s meeting with the sailors, cut back to Evil’s Starbucks lair from The Spy Who Shagged Me -Rearrange a couple of scenes
-From there, most of The Spy Who Shagged Me plays out until Felicity’s death by gassing
-When Austin shoots Evil, he captures him, and from there Spy Who Shagged Me footage ends and we cut to Goldmember footage with Austin visiting Evil’s cell in Geneva. No need to revive Felicity.
-Rest of Goldmember plays out, ‘titty’ satellite gag removed, films resumes  up until Foxy arrests everyone at the sub. Revelation Evil is Austin’s brother cut

M.A.S.K: Assault On Liberty [Fanedit]

 

Retro_T_shirt_grande_

 

Some of you with sharp memories (assuming you’ve followed this blog since the begining) will know I already made an edit of this sometime ago, however that version was about eleven minutes. This is a full-length edit.

If I had to split M.A.S.K up into ‘seasons’ then episode 14 ‘Assault on Liberty’ would be my choice for season one finale. It has everything, mostly action, but kind of a sense of finality as VENOM vehicle are all trashed and the team prevent a quasi-9/11 terrorist plot from being carried out. They even come very close to killing off Miles Mayhem.

Even as a kid, I found the whole thing with Miles surviving the final act a little hard to swallow, so here we don’t cut to him surfacing and vowing revenge.

I did have to lose the destruction of Jackhammer and Piranha, the only portion of this edit I regret taking out is the latter as there’s really nothing wrong with it, but the cheesy idea of Thunderhawk wiping out all of Jackhammer with two pulse blasts just betrays all sense.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles IV [Fanfilm Fanedit]

TMNT IV

 

Utilising as many fan films as I could find on Youtube, I’ve constructed a thirty-minute live-action ‘fourth’ TMNT movie, doing my best with the material to weave together some kind of a coherent plot (it’ll be up to you to decide if I’ve succeeded in that regard), and using a song from the original movie’s soundtrack for the end credits (all of which I’ve taken from some of the fan films I use here)

The movie begins with Raphael working on his anger issues and reuniting with his brothers in Japan, while April moves in with Splinter for a while. Casey Jones in the meantime teams with Keno to try and prevent a canister of TGRI’s mutagen from falling into corrupt hands. Soon, the Foot get involved and kidnap April, just as the TMNT make their way back home to confront the Purple Dragons…

Doctor Who-The Timeless Children: Renegade Cut [Fanedit]

Timeless Children Renegade

 

Just today I worked out how to edit “The Timeless Children” to my satisfaction

It was the previous episode, “Ascension of the Cybermen” that provided me with the alternative to the Timeless Child (a twist I have no issue with and am open to, but this edit is for friends of mine who aren’t on board.since The Doctor’s past with the Division was probably the most genuinely compelling part of the whole revelation, why not make the journey into the Matrix ALL ABOUT THAT hmm? So gone is Tecteun and child experimentation, and in comes how Brendan was recruited. Nothing about the Doctor’s origin is made too clear, so this is very much not just a renegade cut but a “Cartmal Cut”, revealing backstory but keeping the Doctor’s truth a bit distant. Andrew Cartmal himself wasn’t very satisfied with the timeless children twist either. 

Oh, and for kicks, I replaced the Morbius Doctor with something altogether different…won’t spoil what, but I figured it was a worthy inclusion

Power Rangers Wild Force: Forever Red-End of Session Edition [Fanedit]

Power Rangers Forever Red

DOWNLOAD DVD COVER HERE

As I continue to edit various Power Rangers episodes,  the one I’ve been most pleased so far with is the one I’ve done for “Forever Red” the 10th anniversary story from 2002. I’ve repurposed it so it now serves not just as a finale to Power Rangers Wild Force (in place of the “Tnd of the Power Rangers” two-parter) but also a prequel to 2009’s Power Rangers RPM, which at the time was intended to be the last season.

Changes

  1. Added “Previously On…” montage depicting Master Org’s ultimate defeat
  2. Added Cole saying goodbye to Red Lion
  3. Forever Red plays as normal
  4. Added scenes of Cole making peace with his parents’ memory as well as Victor Adlers’ as well Allisa telling the class of what happened to the Rangers afterwards, all taken from “The End of the Power Rangers Part Two”. The scenes where they give up their growl phones and powers has been removed to give you the hope they will eventually return to active Ranger duty.
  5. Special epilogue created for the ending using footage and audio from the RPM title sequence and the episode “Road to Corinth”

Doctor Who-The Angels Take Manhattan: Rory Restored Cut [Fanedit]

Angels Take ManhattanAnyone who caught “The Doctor’s Wife” watchalong may have stumbled on the little online treat on the Doctor Who Lockdown Youtube Channel reuniting Arthur Darvil and the disembodied voice of Karen Gillen as Amy and Rory Williams will no doubt have thought to themselves ‘wow, now I wish this scene had been in the actual episode”….thoughts like that are precisely what sites like these are for, to take those dreams and make them reality.

This is the third time I’ve made my way back to this episode for an edit, and with each take, it continues to evolve…I knew this one had to be different, not just for the inclusion of the ‘Rory’s Story’ short, but also to make it stand out more uniquely than the original episode. My previous edits had arranged things like Rory and Amy surviving the Angel’s touch and removing Rory’s tombstone, but here on the third go, all of that is kept in for the sake of the short, hence the “Restored” part of the title. Rory’s fate is restored to an edit of mine, and Rory himself now gets the final word instead of Amy, as we focus on their future rather than wish their past a fond farewell. Amy said all she needed to say to the raggedy man at the cemetary anyway.

So where does that leave The Doctor? Why, a date with River of course. This time River does not leave Eleven to feel sad and sorry, this time she travels with him. I made use of the short minisode “Rain Gods” found elsewhere on the series seven DVD to acheive this task…and you’ll find it’s not the only minisode I used here. Now instead of that long pre-title side-story for the doomed detective, The Doctor’s short trip (hur hur), to the inforarium (using the minisode of the same name) is used instead. If you choose, you can skip through the episode straight to the Rain Gods scene as everything in the middle is uncut.

New York, the city of a million stories, some of them haven’t happened yet.

We’re managing.

Red Dwarf-The Promised Land: Feral Edition [Fanedit]

Red Dwarf Promised LandDownload Cover Art 

First of all, a big thanks to the attention my alternate ending edits received from some of you fine fellas out there. I’m glad they could entertain you, it certainly proved to be an  inspirational couple of days where work on this was concerned. The whole edit just kept evolving, I must have went through fifteen or so takes before I settled on a version I was currently happy with. At the moment, this is just the try-out TX version, I intend to make a second version once I have the official DVD.

Gone is most of the first ten or so minutes, one portion moved to the very end and the rest cut down, especially the feral cats. Now Rodan is interested only in killing the Dwarf crew for ‘losing’ the anubis stone, which is not handed over to them in this version. Also gone is most of the scenes while Starbug is trapped on the desert planet.

Why did I remove Lister’s followers losing their faith? Because the whole “you’re not who I thought you were” thing isn’t given time to really breath as a concept, on top of that it’s cliched writing 101 and takes something further away from Lister, who’s already lost his crew, Kochanski (twice), his kids and the respect of his own father (himself), so why not for once just let him keep his sacred place amongst the kittens?

I realised that if I removed Lister’s followers losing their faith, I’d have to remove the whole portion of the plot that deals with the Anubis stone…which of course is the macguffin that leads to Rimmer becoming diamond light and saving the ship. Rewatching the episode I figured out a way to make the ‘Dwarfers never give up the stone when they first confront the cats at the Iron Star, and it still plays a role later in giving Rimmer his powers.

Which brings me to the bigger change in the edit….killing off Rimmer…Cat lamenting Rimmer’s loss and asking who he won’t like now still fits with the storyline of Rimmer feeling unloved.

The special provided me with the best possible closure also, something from the first five or ten minutes of the episode, where it’s just Kryten, Cat and Lister together,  and placing it towards the end, repurposing Lister’s directionless behaviour as being more to do with the fact Rimmer is gone than being the last human alive, though that certainly plays a part in it too.
